NAIROBI (AFP) – Thirty-six people have died in three weeks of flooding in Kenya and more than 2,000 families have been displaced, a senior civil servant said Thursday.

Heavy rains have lead to “the loss of 36 lives, 2,393 households displaced and the loss of property and infrastructure,” the second-in-command at the Special Programmes Ministry Andrew Mondoh told journalists.
